Yup! Love those hard core right wingers. Anyone right of Karl Marx is hard core right in the eyes of the liberal. Interesting how the free market works. CNN has lost so many viewers to FOX that they had to put a token right thinker or two on board. Have heard Glen Beck a couple times. Seems an okay guy. know of Lou Dobbs, but haven't really listened to him. Nancy Grace! Is that the same Nancy Grace that was a Clinton apologist during the impeachment hearings?
I read more than I listen. Neal Boortz is my favorite Libertarian. Bill O'Rielly doesn't have him as a guest anymore since Bill called Neal a viscious SOB. he did not abbreviate the SOB. Neal can hold his own with anyone in a debate. He debated a Yale Economist Professor and I understand he did quite well. Didn't even carry any notes with him.
I do not agree totally with anyone. My favorite is Ann Coulter. That sweetie is brilliant. No one understands the liberal psyche as she does. Thats the reason they are so upset and throw pies at her. They can't intelligently counter her commentary. Of course no liberal can intelligently argue using logic. Ann has the constitution to tell the truth like no other. I in particular love the way she called the liberals out on ther trotting out victims that no one is supposed to criticize. Speaking of victims, would a decent person use his wife's cancer to advance his own political gain? Would decent people turn a funeral into a political rally. In that strange universe of the liberal mind, nothing is taboo.
Maybe we can agree on this. The Endeavor was successfully launched yesterday. A proud day for all Americans. In 1969 JFK set a goal to put a man on them moon in 10 years and we did it. That is the only worthwhile thing JFK did. Just think what could happen if our country could come together and set a goal to make our country safe from Islamic terrorism.
Together we prosper, divided we fall. Scarry, huh?
I have a feeling you're just trying to bait me. You can't POSSIBLY mean all of the above. I have just a few things to say in reply:

You and I will never, EVER see eye to eye if you actually have anything other than contempt for that deranged waste of air known as Ann Coulter. She gives new meaning to the definition of evil.

Speaking of decent (or not), and the use of funerals as political rallies, what do you think of Fred Phelps and his followers? Does picketing funerals of dead miners with signs that have NOTHING to do with a mining accident constitute "decent" behavior in your book?

Yes, the Endeavor is a good thing. I believe that JFK would have done many more worthwhile things had he not been offed (same goes for RFK and MLK, of course).

I think the terrorism issue has been blown out of proportion. There may be SOME threat, but to me it seems like a lot of what we see in the media is propaganda by the Bushistas, scare tactics designed to keep the sheeple in line, the better to move us towards a fascist police state.

Fred Phelps? Give me a break. Just what is he supposed to be other than a nut?
I would never try to bait you. Like I say, no one can get the liberal's panties in a wad like my sweetie Ann. She expresses herself so eloquently and with a dark humor. Boy does the truth hurt. Only a liberal could possibly equate Ann Coulter with evil.
JFK, enhanced communism power over Cuba by abandoning anti-Castro troops at the Bay of Pigs. This all happened after the invasion was well underway. He called off Navy air support that had been promised. This cost the lives of three Alabama Air Guard members that were flying for the CIA. A permanent Communist Cuba was insured when JFK made a deal with Khrushchev that the US Navy and Coast Guard would not allow a Cuban invasion from our shores. At that time there were thousands of Cubans training to invade their homeland. Of course this treasonous agreement was the end of that. Castro and Communism are still there, but they shouldn't be.
If I had the mindset of a liberal I would say that Sirhan Sirhan did our country a hughe favor. I would never allow myself to even think like that.
MLK. I know things about MLK that would be more than the sensibiites of the liberal mind could take. So I will not go there.
Good night and let us pray for our troops.

I'm a liberal -- you'll just have to live with that knowledge.

Ann Coulter does NOT express herself with eloquence, IMO. She expresses herself by using politically slanted language designed to appeal to her apologists, not to mention the incredibly nasty sarcasm. I stand by my assessment of her as purely evil -- that's the least offensive way that I know how to put it.

Why should it be up to JFK or any other leader to decide what kind of government ANOTHER country has? It's not up to us to police the world and all the other governments in existence. That goes for JFK and ESPECIALLY for Bush.

Why would a liberal think that Sirhan Sirhan did the country a favor -- he killed a Kennedy, for Pete's sake. That was not good news for liberals.

The only "praying" I will ever do for our troops is that they be brought home safely NOW. They shouldn't be over there and never SHOULD have been there to begin with.

The liberal has given new defination to evil. To me, Joe Stalin was evil. Hitler was evil. Pol Pot was evil Castro is evil. As much as I despise the left in this country, I cannot classify anyone evil. Given the opportunity some could be. Nancy or Hillary would lop off your privates in a second if it suited their agenda.
My Sirhan statement meant that if my moral code was that of a liberal, I could say that I was glad that someone was killed. You know, as so many libs say about Bush and Cheny. Although I had nothing but anthipity for JFK, RFK, MLK, I would never be glad they were killed.
Liberals did not understand the world wide communist threat after world II. Fortunately Reagan came along and was able to dismantle that threat. Actually, many liberals sympathized with the communists and still do. I could give you a history lesson as to how the commies operated, but it would be a waste of my energy. Lets just say that the domino theory was working quite well until Reagan came along.
I hope you're right about that terrorist threat being exagerated. I'm glad to know that 9/11 was a figment of my imagination. How will you feel if we actually lose an American city to the Islamic radicals?
You really need to decide if you want freedom or you want socialism under the democ'rats. The two are not compatable.
You sould spend the weekend reading Ann Coulter's book, "Godless." You will see that Ann is really a nice person. Just unafraid to say what she thinks. She is a deep thinker.
Let us pray for George Bush. He has the toughest least appreciated job in the world. So far he has saved our butt whether we like it or not.

Mountain Boy, arguing with you is getting to be not only time consuming but also tiresome. My beliefs are approximately 180 degrees opposed to yours. If that makes me "evil," so be it. And on that note, I'm going to cheerfully call it a day. Peace.
